Local Information

Swansea is a wonderful city located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Swansea, Wales' city by the sea, has Viking roots and a long, eventful history. Home to innovative visitor attractions and renowned for its awesome nightlife, it's a vibrant cultural centre, and a regional shopping hub. Just a stone's throw away, the charismatic seaside village of Mumbles offers galleries and boutiques, snug cafés and fine dining.

The Gower Peninsula extends west of Mumbles, in miles of unspoilt coastal panoramas, award-winning golden beaches, and lush, rolling countryside. And on the eastern edge of Swansea Bay, there's the Waterfall Country of Afan and the Vale of Neath: a must-see for walkers and cyclists alike. These steep-sided, wooded valleys are home to world-class mountain-biking, stately country parks, and the UK's second-largest forest south of the Scottish border.

Stansted Airport

Stansted airport is an airport dedicated to cheap airlines. Note however that it is about 20 - 30 £ more expensive to get from there to Swansea rather than from Heathrow airport. The journey takes as well much longer and is less convenient then the journey from Gatwick and Heathrow or the regional airports.

There are two main routes from Stansted Airport to Swansea.
